Presentation Transcript

  1. Hana Lab Reservax System

  2. Introduction——HanaLab • Behavioral Lab (DBH 6F) • A place to run • Systematic behavioral experiments • Usability studies • Focus groups • Telephone interviews • Consists of • Five small rooms • One large room • Control room • Equipment room

  3. Current Workflow    • Reservax is used for scheduling subjects

  4. Current Workflow    • Google Calendar is used for reserving rooms & reserving equipment

  5. Current Workflow • Three different User Personas • Administrators • Give access to experimenters • Recruit subjects • Experimenters  • Create experiments and set time slots • Send email to the pool announcing the study • Subjects • Sign up to the pool • Receive email when an experiment is posted • Sign up in offered time slots

  6. Problems with Current Workflow • Reservax administrators cannot participate in studies • Reservax does not allow scheduling of single rooms in the Hana Lab • Reservax does not have a feature to check out equipment (laptops, etc) • Reservax does not allow multiple experiments running at the same time • Administrators/Users have to use multiple services because of missing features (Google Calendar & Reservax) • Some features are duplicated across services (Reservax's list of open timeslots vs. Google Calendar's schedule)

  7. Research Methods • Phone calls to other Reservax users (UBC, BAR Lab, etc) • Conduct Interviews to find out how users think they use the system • Interviews to find out how administrators think they use the current system • User testing for users/administrators to see how they really use the system • We currently have a subject pool of current users and potential users (80-90), we will most likely use 6 to 8 users per test group. (discussed later)

  8. Research Phases • Research Phases • Interviews (administrators+users) • Pilot Test • User Testing (administrators+users) • Evaluation • Redesign (mockups in powerpoint & photoshop) • Interviews • Pilot Test • User Testing • Re-evaluation

  9. Usability Test Tasks • Study must incorporate the system from 3 Types of User Personas • Administrator • Task:Create an Experimenter account • Task: Change the Announcement on the front page • Task: Add a logo • Task: Change Name of Laboratory • Task: Edit the Subject View Page

  10. Usability Test Tasks Continued... • Experimenter • Task: View an Experiment • Task: Create an Experiment • Task: Create a time slot • Task: View appointments • Task: Check out equipment for an experiment • Participant • Task: Sign Up for an experiment • Task: Contact Experimenter • Task: Download Consent Form

  11. Goal Deadlines • Week 4 - 10-22-2010 • Evaluate current systems (Reservax & Google Calendar) • Call other Reservax users (colleges) • Week 5 - 10-29-2010 • Interviews on current system (administrators, experimenters) • User Testing (administrators+experimenters+users?) • Week 6 - 11-5-2010 • Evaluation of current system • Redesign (mockups of new Reservax UI) • Week 7 - 11-12-2010 • Interviews (administrators+experimenters+users) • User Testing (administrators+experimenters+users) • Week 9 - 11-28-2010 • Finalizing work & time for any extra work
